Last night we watched the most amazing lightning storm 🌩 I have ever seen. When it first started I zipped out, took one photo, then realized I'm an idiot, and zipped back inside and watched the rest from the living room 😂 #worthit #bcstorm #🌩 #⛈ #lightning #lightningstorm #lightningstrike #thunder #thunderstorm #summerstorm #naturalfireworks #lightningphotography #southokanagan #penticton #okfalls #okanaganfalls #okanagan #nightphotography #longexposure
